See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Foreign Minister Walter Scheel will visit Cairo next March for political consultations with Egyptian leaders, the Foreign Ministry confirmed today. He is also expected to visit Jordan and Lebanon. An announcement in Cairo that Scheel would visit there from March 2-5 was not confirmed here but the Ministry said those dates were in line with what Bonn had in mind.

Scheel, who visited Israel last summer, was to have gone to Cairo as well last year but his visit was postponed due to the West German elections and the Munich slayings last Sept. 6. His main topics of discussions in Cairo will be the Middle East situation and German-Arab bilateral cooperation, sources here said. West Germany and Egypt will begin talks next month on a new line of credit and debt rescheduling.
